Importing Data Into MIP Fund Accounting
Bringing data electronically into your accounting system can save valuable time, as well as help assure accuracy of the information itself.  This process typically falls into one of two categories.

Data Imports - one time information being transferred from your existing accounting system or an electronic worksheet.  Among other things, this might include vendor & customer lists, fixed asset records, and employee demographic information.   View a detailed list of information that can be imported into MIP.

Data Interface - recurring information imported into MIP from another software program.  Common examples are third party payroll systems, clinical billing applications, and donor management software.    View more information about interfacing applications with MIP.
